3.96/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From a 750 ml bottle purchased at Ommegang. Date is 10/4/14 so tasted about 8 month before best by date.
Beautiful pour, Light brown with red. Tan head that is very thick and fluffy fills about 1/4 of the glass.
Sweet smell of cherries.
Big fruity taste and a good warming feeling , you know there is alcohol in there.
A very good dubbel.

3.73/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml Bottle from The Cave, Glasgow (£2.80):
Caramel brown to mahogany & a 1cm, foamy white head with great retention & a creamy texture that leaves good lacing too.

Sweet with a lot of sugar & over-ripe fruits, some figs, cherries & plum too. Lots of sweetness & dark fruits to this one along with a boozy, alcohol laced aroma. Some caramel and a great balance on the nose.

Very sweet & sugary with figs, dates & cherries plus lots of sugar coming from all of these. A definite alcohol taste to this one is areas and some caramel too that adds to the sweetness and some malts too.

Smooth & incredibly sweet with a lot of carbonation & some alcohol coming through. Medium bordering on light bodied in places with a slightly dry finish.

Started great with the look & the smell of the beer impressing in particular, sadly the taste couldn't match the start with the sweetness overpowering the taste in places & the beer seeming a little bland occasionally. It is definitely up there with some of the best looking beers I've had but the taste let it down sadly.
